-known authority of this body, the united states senate, is likely to be the advise and consent pri provisions. constitution. article 2, section 2, with the advice and consent of the senate the president shall appoint ambassadors and others. and there are about 1, 100 of those that the president appoints. and two years ago and then just last week we streamlined the confirmation process a little bit to narrow the focus on the most important appointees and make it easier to get them confirmed. so those are the checks and balances that the constitution meant to establish. they did that so that we would have liberty from a tyrannical executive branch, which is what the founders were worrying about, and the court is as that i had that the president exceeded that. thertherefore, these two memberf the nlrb should resign immediate lid and pack their bags and go home with our thanks for their hard work despite the fact that the cases they voted on ought to all b be vacated. a new sign needs to go up at the national labor relations board. take down the sign that say, open for business. put up a sign tha

rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb

you're seeing in the senate and house right now. >> senator daschle, if you parachuted into the united states senate today, newly elected senator, would you recognize the place from the places you group in politically? >> i think you would. i think that obviously the institution itself is still very much intact. we had a discussion of our rules in the last couple of weeks. i think you're going to see the institution continue to evolve. but the basic components are still there, principles are still there. the founding fathers came up with a unique way for everyone to have a role, small states and large states and to contribute. those principles are still there. i'm act which encouraged. howard is right, demographics are changing politics and as they change on immigration, they will change on climate and a number of areas i think the american people will demand senators and congressman find common ground a lot more effectively. we're beginning to see that in the first three weeks of this session. >> let me say also senator and governor dean, the demographics will also change the debt deb

in the united states senate. a similar group happening -- the conversation happening on the house side as well this a bipartisan basis. in a moment, we'll hear from folks who don't agree with the president's proposal. first, let's get reaction from our team of political experts and reporters, gloria borger with us, jessica yellin and miguel marquez at a key location in georgia. i want to start with you, jesse, because of something the president said. he said he was laying out key markers. he said if congress doesn't move a bill, if it bogs down, he will send a specific proposal of his own. that's something reform advocates wanted in first term. why does the president think the second term politics are better? >> reporter: because of the president's showing amo ining ao voters. he won more than 70% of the latino vote. republicans did not show well among them. and so the shift means that there is a coalition now among democrats and republicans, he believes, to move republicans across the finish line to get something done now on immigration reform. what is meaningful, i think, about the statement

and really defanning, they sent over this horrible legislation. we stopped it all in the united states senate. but yeah, so the good news is that strong e.p.a. can really make progress. now, a lot of the special interests, the big oil the big coal, they'll scream and yell. and sue. but the fact is it's clear that the clean air act covers carbon pollution. now, the rest of it are smaller pieces like agriculture and about 7% of the emissions. and about 11% come from buildings. and i'm going to try to go after that 11%. in a good way. by essentially putting out sort of a revolving fund, people are older homes big landlords with older buildings can borrow, interest-free, to make these homes energy efficient. that's going to save a lot of pollution. it is going to stop a lot of pollution. i think we can actually do something here. now, we have a lot of tremendous amount of opposition. >> stephanie: yeah. and it is so surprising from the house republicans. senator, i could talk to you all morning. you have to tell me quickly about the line act before you go. there may be nothing else more important

that the border is secure before anybody could pass from contemporarily and the united states to being able to apply for permanent residency. i have been struck by the enormous expenditures already that the government is spending. i noted in my column this week, the federal government spent $18 billion last year on border security, which is more than the combined budgets of the fbi, marshals service, the secret service, the dea, the atf -- all of these other federal law- enforcement agencies. their total budgets for only $14 billion. we are spending a huge amount on border security already. your sense of what the president is saying on the other hand that he doesn't want to have this kind of certification, that he has already secured or wants to secure the borders in his first term. >> let's just remember [indiscernible] the border enforcement benchmark that we discussed in 2006 the border has seen a buildup of enforcement. today, we have 400 miles of fencing and place, double the border patrol agents on the ground which is up to 22,000. we have deployed the national guard. as you say, we h

the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>bria

involved want to get out ahead of the president of the united states to lay out their vision. the balance, if you will, in terms of a pathway to citizenship along with enforcement. here is one of the key republicans making his point. >> the president wants to go and basically chart a difficult path. and what i have heard about what he is going to say, he is going to say there is no lead to link a pathway to citizenship to border security. excuse me, mr. president? the last time we provide ad pathway to citizenship and didn't secure our border was in 1986. i'm not going to do that again. >> reporter: as it is there is no guaranty the bipartisan proposal would pass the house of representatives. they have work ahead trying to sell the house on it but, it if you take enforcement out of the plan the feeling up here on capitol hill it will be a no-go in terms of bipartisan support, patti ann. patti ann: mike, people see this as kind of a unique opportunity, a good time to strike on this issue? >> reporter: no question about that. post-election the feeling is this is the time to strike. the amer

million of them or so, to stay in the united states and live and work with a green card as long as they paid taxes and penalties and then got in line for proper application for citizenship. but first, these senators want to beef up border security. they want to improve the tracking of legal immigrants who may stay beyond their legal immigration status. they also want to strengthen the ememployment verification system and create a green card system for top foreign college students getting ph.ds and massers degrees in math and sciences. senator mccain, for republicans would be good politically but one republican senator he was not yet ready to sign on. take a listen. >> we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. we can not forever have children who were born here, who were brought here by their parents when they were small children, to live in the shadows as well. >> i think right now they're at the talking point stage. this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up, was when it was reduced to legi
